the president is open for compromise but he's not going to give away the store, not this year. he learned his lessons back in the lame duck section of congress. >> what i will not do is to have a process that is vague, that says we're going to sort of kind of raise revenue through dynamic store and the reason i won't do that is because i don't want to find ourselves in a position six months from now or a year from you-from-now the only way to close the deficit is to sock it to middle class families. >> now that is the classiest way i have ever seen anybody say, you know what, somebody's got to pick up the bar tabs, boys. this is what president obama ran against notice presidential election. mitt romney's approach to tax reform was trust me. the american public wanted specifics and president obama continued to give specifics today but the economy wasn't the only thing on the president's mind today. earlier in the day here's another development. ambassador to the united nations susan rice came under fire from republican senators, senators john mccain and lindsey graham back at it trying to trump up the ben gansy roles. they took their shots and the president hit back. >> if senator mccain and others want to go after somebody, they should go after meand i'm happy to have that discuss with them. but for then to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> that's loyalty to a staff nem. if looks could kill, the president's look would be a cruise missile. >> it was the most sustained anger, i think it will be the most sustained inc.er that we have seen and will see coming from this president in a display in a television news conference. now, there is no evidence the ambassador did anything wrong regarding the benz attacks. president obama is not about to let a member of his administration get drugged through the mud by the righties. he was also very calculating on his take on the scandal surrounding former cia chief david pezus. >> i am withholding judgment on how the process around general pettia came up. and it's also possible you'd be asking why are we interfering in a criminal investigation. i think it's best right now for to us see how this whole process unfolded. >> the president also showed the immigration he has and pressure on republicans to reach a bipartisan agreement. >> before the election hi given a couple interviews where i had predicted that the latino vote to be strong and that and. >> i gets it's full steam ahead for the president's second term. he knows the work is not over on immigration. that is it going to be a big issue in 2013. climate chang came up today, which is very important to the economy and the economy itself. president obama needs to pain t -- maintain the support of the american people. at one point he was asked "you got a mandate"? >> with respect to the issue of mandate, i've got one mandate. i've got a mandate to help middle class families and families that are working hard to try to get in the middle class. that's my hand date. that's what the american people said. they said work really hard don't worry about the party interests, don't worry about the special interests. just work really hard if can you help us get ahead because we're working really hard out here and we're still struggling, a lot of us. >> the president already said the bush tax cuts for the rish will expire and he said the tabs cuts for 98% of americans must be extended. now who can have a problem with that? as it is the ball is in the hands of the republicans. the president basically is daring them to defy his mandate. kind of they -- you know, i think they will. i don't think they want a deal. they'll talk about it but i don't believe that they want the deal. > >>>. >> do you trust t-- joining me tonight is ohio congressman tim ryan. >> great to be with you, ed. >> are we seeing a different negotiator evolve here after the election, meaning he doesn't have to be rebolden for nv ib, he's not what he ran on, how energized are you and maybe some other democrats in the house when you see that?

>> you know, we're skeptical. i'm trying to figure out which republican could vote for an increase in taxes and sill they have to go back home and get prime aired eye and if they can't come to grips with a balanced deal where you're asking the wealth yet in the country, who have paid -- made so much money over the last decade, then that really show what is kind of party they are. and this is about the values that we hold as americans, ed. this is not about numbers. it's about values. >> when you look at the way this is etting up, this has a lot 2014 talk to it already. these republicans are going to have to go home and explain why you couldn't get along with the 98% of americans. that would put that against the middle class, wouldn't it? >> imagine on friday and they're all sitting around the table and the president says, hey, fellas, you're going to be responsible for raising taxes on middle class americans. if you fail to agree to top are on the driveway on the way out of here. >> now, you just mentioned a moment ago that the president is well connected. he read a letter from the tennessee voter today who did not support him in this lek cycle but had a message for all poll signatureses in the wake of this election. here it is -- >> my home, he wrote, is that we can make light of personal and party principles, special interest groups and years of business as usual. we've got to work together and put our dinss aside. i doesn'tcy it better than -- they talk to each other. it's their own little group and they turn on each other and they get redurj waited and then turn the been patriot. >> there was no mandate for change in this election. of course not in your congressional district, you got 80% in a conservative public district. get your head out of the sand, look what's going on in the rest of the world and realize you don't always get your in live. but there are no relationships i've ever been in or anybody i've ever met where there isn't some compromise. so why would you come to the united states congress representing 300 plus mmm people, 435 members of congress and you think you're going to get your way 100% of the time. it just doesn't any sense. that's why the president has got to be so intense and so firm and stick to his guns here and let them collapse, let them told. >> quickly, congressman, 60 vsh 40, 70/30, where is it on a deal?

he was given an opportunity by bon schieffer. he had just gotten a classified briefing from the cia that told him what everybody who has got from in the glassified briefing knows that it was the cia's fault they department get information faster on what happened in benghazi. it was not at all susan rice's fault. >> the president said today the congress had the same information that susan rice had but john mccain was out there blabbing thorn saying she should have known better. as federal budget she doesn't have good enough to be in is that for this system and really it's discouraging for senator mccain who in the past i think has had wide respect on boothe both sides of the i'll it ton is to he was running against a wing er so the only reason he's doing this is out of personal weak or some other cranky motive and he just needs to give it up and lindsey graham needs to give it up, too. they need to suck it up and start to work across the aisle like they have in the past and show some basic respect for the president of the united states. >> this is the first shot over the bough as to how the next congress are going to feel about what another. do you think mccain can stop her. >> oh, sure, they can stop her in the senate. it only takes a couple of people to phil buster start. then in i they don't back down, did will be for confirm. >> a lot of the -- maybe drink something harder and try to work this out and establish some kind of relationship on behalf of the american public. >> mccain has not shown any interest to work anything out with the president. think think you wee can hold on both on that one. next up, mitt romney talks to big money donors and doubles. >> the new class of win has arrived on capitol hill. i always wait until the last minute. can i still ship a gift in time for christmas?

"the ed show" with ed schultz starts right now. >>> good evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show," from new york. president obama went to bat for the middle class today and mitt romney is still beating up the 47%. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> with respect to the issue of mandate, i've got one mandate. i've got a mandate to help middle class families and families that are working hard to try to get -- that's my mandate. >> the president draws a line in the sand for the middle class. >> the only question now is, are we going to hold the middle class hostage? >> and gets as angry as you will ever see him taking on an old bitter foe. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. >> tonight, congressman tim ryan of ohio on the president's middle class rallying cry. jonathan alter on the epic throwdown with john mccain. >>> plus, the new senator even nate silver didn't see coming. >> we missed the north dakota senate -- >> yes, you did! >> heidi hitekamp joins me for an exclusive interview. and republicans in ohio haven't learned anything. tonight, state senator nina turner on today's republican vote to defund planned parenthood. >>> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. absent of arrogance, president obama continued his fight for the middle class today and hit back at republican bullies in the process. the president held his first news conference since winning the presidency once again. it's the first time he's faced the news media without the worry or pressure of running for re-election. president obama is staying in constant communication with the american public, as he makes it clear the country cannot afford to extend the bush tax cuts for the wealthy. >> this shouldn't be a surprise to anybody. this was -- if there was one thing that everybody understood, it was a big difference between myself and mr. romney, it was when it comes to how we reduce our deficit, i argued for a balanced, responsible approach, and part of that included making sure that the wealthiest americans pay a little bit more. >> the president's plan, with this whole game, with all the cards out in the open and on the table. you know what, think about this. the president could have said, you know, i don't want to do that. i think i'm going to cave in today. he don't have to worry about anything. he's not up for re-election. he played with heart today. this is the guy you voted for. this is the guy who said all tloong that he would fight for the middle class and that is exactly what he's doing first press conference. he's asking for $1.6 trillion in new revenue. and the public is okay with his approach. >> more voters agreed with me on this issue than voted for me. so we've got a clear majority of the american people who recognize if we're going to be serious about deficit reduction, we've got to do it in a balanced way. the only question now is, are we going to hold the middle class hostage in order to go ahead and let that happen? >> president obama continues to demand house republicans pass a bill, extending the tax cuts for 98% of americans and do it, you know, right now. wouldn't that be good for the economy? the president is open to compromise, but he's not going to give away the store, not this year. he learned his lessons back in the lame duck session of congress, 2011. so today he openly rejected the mitt romney, john boehner solution for tax reform. >> what i will not do is to have a process that is vague, that says we're going to sort of, kind of raise revenue through dynamic scoring or closing loopholes that have not been identified. and the reason i won't do that is because i don't want to find ourselves in a position six months from now or a year from now, where lo and behold, the only way to close the deficit is to sock it to middle class families. >> now, that is the classiest way i have ever seen anybody say, you know what, somebody's got to pick up the bar tab, boys. this is what president obama ran against in the presidential election. mitt romney's approach to tax reform was, trust me. the american public wanted specifics. and president obama continued to give specifics today, but the economy wasn't the only thing on the president's mind today. earlier in the day, here's another development. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice came under fire from republican senators. senators john mccain and lindsey graham, back at it, trying to trump up the ambassador's role in the benghazi consulate attacks. they took their shots at ambassador rice this morning and the president hit back. >> senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received, and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> that's loyalty to a staff member. if looks could kill, the president's look would be a cruise missile. it was the most sustained anger, i think it will be the most sustained anger that we have seen and will see coming from this president in a display in a television news conference. now, there is no evidence the ambassador did anything wrong, regarding the benghazi attacks. president obama is not about to let a member of his administration get dragged through the mud by the righties. he was also very calculating about his take on the scandal surrounding former cia chief, david petraeus. >> i am withholding judgment, with respect to how the entire process surrounding general petraeus came up. it is also possible that had we been told, then you'd be sitting here asking a question about why were you interfering in a criminal investigation. so i think it's best right now for us to just see how this whole process unfolded. >> the president also showed the kind of leverage he has on immigration reform. he emphasized latino voter turnout and the pressure being put on republicans to reach a bipartisan agreement. >> before the election, i had given a couple of interviews, where i had predicted that the latino vote was going to be strong, and that that would cause some reflection on the part of republicans, about their position on immigration reform. i think we're starting to see that already. i think that's a positive sign. >> fresh off the campaign trail, i guess it's full steam ahead for the president's second term. he knows the work is not over on immigration. that, of course, is going to be a big issue in 2013. climate change came up today, which, of course, is very important to the economy. and the economy itself. president obama needs to maintain the support of the american people. he's going on the road and i love it. at one point today, the president was asked, you got a mandate? his answer told you everything you need to know about where the president expects his second term to go. >> with respect to the issue of mandate, i've got one mandate. i've got a mandate to help middle class families and families that are working hard to try to get in the middle class. that's my mandate. that's what the american people said. they said, work really hard to help us. don't worry about the politics of it. don't worry about the party interests, don't worry about the special interests. just work really hard to see if you can help us get ahead, because we're working really hard out here and we're still struggling, a lot of us. that's my mandate. >> the president already said the bush tax cuts for the rich will expire. he's already said that the tax cuts for 98% of americans must be extended. now, who could be against that? you can just do the math and see that if they extend the tax cuts for 98% of americans, the economy has a chance of moving forward, as it is right now. the ball is in the hands of the republicans, isn't it? we're going to find early on if they want to play obstruction all over again. the president is basically daring them to defy his mandate. i kind of hope they do, but i kind of really -- you know, i think they will. i don't think they want a deal. they'll talk about it, but i don't believe that they want the deal. get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question, do you trust republicans to protect the middle class tax cuts? text "a" for yes, text "b" for no to 622639. joining me tonight is ohio congressman, tim ryan. great to have you with us tonight. >> great to be with you, ed. >> are we seeing a different negotiator evolve here after the election? knowing that he really doesn't have to be beholden to anybody, because he's not up for re-election. this is what he ran on, which is what he talked about today. how energized are you and maybe some other democrats in the house when you see that? >> i was just thrilled today. i think this is the most presidential he's ever looked. he was strong, he laooked like leader. you get into these campaigns and they're very enthusiastic, but when you get into the process of governing, there needs to be this slow-burning intensity in order to push your things through. and he had that today and i think he showed some real leadership. and i think it has something to do with the campaign trail, i think it has something to do with the hurricane, where he really got down on the ground with the people that were hurt so badly by the hurricane. and he really got reconnected and you can see it now. he knows who he's fighting for and he's doing it in a way really only that he can do in that magical barack obama way. >> congressmen, collectively, do you think the democrats believe that the republicans will do a deal? >> you know, we're skeptical. i mean, i'm trying to figure out which republican could vote for an increase in taxes, even on millionaires and still not think they've got to go back home and get primaried by some tea party radical. and that's really the calculation. that's the struggle that john boehner's having right now. but it will further define the republican party. and if they can't come to grips with a balanced deal, where you're asking the wealthiest in the country, who have made so much money over the last decade, then that really shows what kind of party they are. and this is about the values that we hold as americans, ed. this is not about numbers. this is about values. >> well, you know, when you look at the way this is setting up, this has got a lot of 2014 talk to it already. i mean, these republicans are going to have to go home and explain, well, i couldn't go along with the tax cuts for the 98% of americans. that would put them against the middle class, wouldn't it? >> yeah. i mean, imagine on friday, when they're all sitting around the table, and the president says, hey, fellas, you know, you're going to be responsible for raising taxes on middle class americans. and if you fail to agree to this top 1% or top 2% tax increase that we're asking for, you go out. the microphones are in the driveway on the way out of here. you go explain to the american people why they're going to pay more in taxes. >> now, you just mentioned just a moment ago that you thought the president was well connected. that he was re-conducted, best he's ever been. president obama read a letter from a tennessee voter today, who did not support it in this election cycle. but had a message for all politicians in the wake of this election. here it is. >> my hope, he wrote, is that we can make progress in light of personal and party principles, special interest groups, and years of business as usual. we've got to work together and put our differences aside. i couldn't say it better myself. >> i mean, republicans, are they, in congress, selling themselves on cooperation? >> well, you know how this goes, ed. they talk to each other. it's their own little group and they keep talking to each other and they turn on fox news and they get that regurgitated and they turn on the business channels and they get that regurgitated, and they all think they're right. and they don't stick their heads out of the window. you got really tea party republicans coming out of southern states who said, there was no mandate for change in this election. well, yeah, of course not in your congressional district, you got 80% in the conservative republican district. get your head out of the sand, look at what's going on in the rest of the world, and realize you don't always get your way in life. i don't know how these guys, what relationships they have with other human beings, but there are no relationships i've ever been in or anybody i've ever met where there isn't some compromise. so why would you come to the united states congress, representing millions of people, and you think you're going to get your way 100% of the time? it just doesn't make any sense, and that's why the president has got to be so intense and so firm and stick to his guns here. and i think he's going to do it, and let them collapse. let them fold. >> quickly, congressman, 50/50 on a deal, 60/40. >> i don't know. >> the fact that you can't call it like that after what we've seen speaks volume. you've got your pulse of your colleagues in the congress. that just tells me that this president has toe keep moving forward with the wind at his back and the people at his back. that's why labor yesterday was talking about doing rallies and getting into the backyards of these righties, and telling them, this is the way it's got to go for me to save the treasury. >> absolutely. trumpka's great, he's a great leader. and now we see the business leaders come online too, to say, hey, come on, guys. get with the program here. there's something bigger than just your own political career at stake here. >> congressman tim ryan of ohio, thanks for being here. >> always a pleasure. >> remember to answer tonight's question at the bottom of the screen. share your thoughts on facebook and twitter. >>> coming up, john mccain is leading the attack on u.n. ambassador susan rice. well, president obama had a few words for mccain this afternoon. jonathan alter will weigh in. stay with us. we are right back. ♪ don't know what i'd do ♪ i'd have nothing to prove ♪ i'd have nothing to lose ♪ i'd be all lost at sea ♪ with no reason to make it through ♪ [ male announcer ] introducing the celebration diamond collection. ♪ if it wasn't for you [ male announcer ] diamonds so expertly cut, we guarantee them for life. zales is the diamond store. let love shine. olaf gets great rewards for his small business! pizza!

>> well, the reason the president was so ticked in the press conference today is he learned just before the press conference, i hear from the white house, that, you know, john mccain and lindsey graham were intending to filibuster susan rice if she should be nominated as secretary of state. and that really angered the president. and one reason why, which i don't think is enormously understood, is it's hypocritical, if you turn back the clock to when condoleezza rice was taking all kinds of heat before she was nominated to be george bush's secretary of state, because she had fallen for this faulty intelligence on iraq. remember when she talking about the mushroom cloud in iraq and all this, because she had believed the cia. so all that susan rice has done is believe the cia. that's her own only sin in this entire thing. and so for mccain to say he's going to filibuster her for something that he and then senator obama defended condoleezza rice on, is really hypocritical and really annoying to the president. because she was doing exactly what mitt romney did. you'll notice in the third debate, mitt romney did not bring up benghazi. why? he was given an opportunity by bob schieffer. he didn't because he had just gotten a classified briefing from the cia that told him what everybody who has got an classified briefing knows. which is that it was cia's fault that they didn't get intelligence faster on what happened in benghazi. it was not at all susan rice's fault. >> well, the president said today that the congress had the same information that susan rice had. >> exactly. >> but john mccain was out there blabbing this morning, saying that they should have known better. as if she doesn't have good enough judgment to be in this position or to be even considered for it. i mean, how much of a slap in the face is that? >> well, it's really discouraging that senator mccain, who, you know, in the past, i think, has had really wide respect on both sides of the aisle, that he would be doing this. it was easy to say, when he was running against a right-winger in 2010, in the primary, oh, he has to, you know, deport his principles over the border on immigration or other things in order to get re-elected. people in washington understand that. but he's now safely re-elected. so the only reason he's doing this is out of personal pique or some over cranky motive and he just needs to give it up. and lindsey graham needs to give it up too. and they need to suck it up and start to work across the aisle like they have in the past, and show some basic respect for the president of the united states. >> i mean, this is the first shot over the bow, as to how the next congress is going to feel about one another. i mean, do you think mccain and graham would have the troops to stop her if she does, and the president says today he hasn't made that determination yet, whether he's going to nominate her or not. do you think they have the chops to do that? >> sure. in the senate, it only takes a couple of people to filibuster. and then there aren't the 60 votes. and if they go through with this, if they don't back down, it will be hard for her to get confirmed. that's the reality of the u.s. senate. so it seems to me and i think a lot of other people that the president and senator mccain need to get together, you know, not have a beer summit, maybe drink something harder, and, you know, try to work this out and establish some kind of relationship on behalf of the american public. >> mccain has not shown any interest to work anything out with the president, and i think we can hold our breath on this one. thank you, jonathan alter. great to have you us with tonight. >> thanks, ed. >>> next up, mitt romney talks to big money donors and doubles down on his talk of the nation's 47%. >>> and then the rps never dreamed that they would end up seeing this. the new class of women has arrived on capitol hill. we'll talk to one of the new senators who fourgt one of the toughest races in the nation and won on the prairie. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. time for citi price rewind. because your daughter really wants that pink castle thing. and you really don't want to pay more than you have to. only citi price rewind automatically searches for the lowest price. and if it finds one, you get refunded the difference. just use your citi card and register your purchase online. have a super sparkly day! ok. [ male announcer ] now all you need is a magic carriage. citi price rewind. buy now. save later. >>> welcome backed to ed show. thanks for staying with us tonight. president obama wasn't the only one speaking out today. the mr. mitt romney held a conference call with his high-dollar donors. romney seemed to double down on his 47% comments. romney said the president won by following the old playbook and giving gifts to, quote, the african-american community, the hispanic community, and young people. the former candidate went on to say this. "with regards to the young people, for instance, a forgiveness of college loan interest was a big gift. free contraceptives were very big with young college-aged women. and then finally, obama care also made a difference for them because, as you know, anybody now 26 years of age and younger was now going to be part of their parent's plan, and that was a big gift too to young people." for more, let's turn to john nichols, washington correspondent of "the nation" magazine and author of the book "uprising." it doesn't sound like mitt romney has learned anything in the last week. >> the interesting thing is that back in october, when he was really getting a hard time for the 47%, he went on fox and he said, i was totally wrong. well, it turns out he was lying to fox, of all people. because the fact is, this goes deeper. this is actually not just saying there's 47% that relies on government. he's actually saying that young people, people of color in this country, working folks can be bribed with contraception, to make their -- they do their total vote on -- >> what do you think he was saying, referring to them as gifts? when the people of this country voted for the president, when he said he was going to reform health care, and the voters in the senate and house of representatives went along with it to pass something. how can that with a gift? >> well, it's not a gift. this is government. and unfortunately, it seems to me that mitt romney has been listening not to conservative media, but to the fringe of the right wing. the people who actually think this country is divided into makers and takers. now, that's a big paul ryan line. and this is a fantasy. the fact of the matter is, we have a government in this country that does some things. and most of what mitt romney's objecting to is government. >> was there a racial component here? and i ask that question, because mitt romney is talking about giving more tax breaks to the wealthiest americans, but president obama can't have a plan for young people or african-americans or hispanics? how else do you read it? >> well, it's the same -- look, paul ryan did an interview just this week where he was talking about the urban areas voting in a certain way. and it seems that this is the fantasy, the delusion that they've decided to carry on. that they didn't lose because their ideas were bad, day didn't lose because they made mistakes. in fact, in this call, mitt romney complimented his campaign. they lost because somehow the 47% was given so many gifts that it grew into 51%. >> does it make it harder for the republican party to patch up their image and their vision for the future when they are going to be dogged by comments like this, as to why they lost the last presidential election? it's not inclusive. how do they repair that? >> we have republican chairmans across the country sending out memos saying, we've got to start to reach out to hispanics and the african-american community, we've got to connect with young people. and here you have their immediate former candidate talking to the big dollar donors, people that gave them $900 million, and saying, nothing, our ideas are great. we just got outbribed. that's ridiculous. >> john nichols, great to have you with us tonight. thanks so much. there's a lot more coming up in the next half hour of "the ed show." stay right with us. >> in my own personal experience, it was very important for me to elect young women and encourage people to come. and when they come here, to give them opportunity to serve. >> 2012 is the year of the woman in congress. tonight, north dakota's first female senator heidi hitekamp joins me exclusively. >>> does barack obama now have a mandate? >> i don't think so, because they also re-elected the house republicans. >> the mandate deniers are living in a bubble. we'll lay out the facts. >>> and eight days after getting thumped at the polls, ohio republicans are already trying to defund planned parenthood. state senator knnina turner is here tonight and she's standing up for women.

so i've got to ask you, you know, the cultural issues, guns, gays, and god, the g-word, how did you cut through all of that and get a victory? >> i think the most important thing is to understand what north dakotans really care about. they care about a farm bill, they care about energy policy. but, ed, mainly day care about people who know how to get things done. it's no different than anything you've been hearing all across the country. the american public is tired of the partisan bickering, they are tired of all of the back and forth. they want solutions to these problems. and that's our job. and i think they thought i'd deliver the solutions. >> okay, solution. tax cuts. would you go for getting rid of the bush tax cuts and taxing the top 2%, just what the president said today. can you go along with that? >> you know, we've been talking a lot, and you know me, i've spent a fair amount of my political life and my public life working in the tax area. my big concern is the difference between earned and unearned income. and i say this every time. i say, the bob cat worker in north dakota pays a higher tax rate than paris hilton, because she doesn't earn her income. she just lets her money make her money. and we need to figure out a way to equalize those rates. maybe not make them identical, but to equalize them. because this tax structure, when mitt romney pays 15% and the average american, middle class family, pays much higher, there is something wrong with the tax code. and that needs to be fixed. >> what about going back to the old rates? going back to the wealthiest americans, paying almost 40%. what about that? >> i think that, you know, you need to take a look at on what kind of income. to me the discussion is more about rates. it's about what do we apply those rates to and how do we equalize people who make a lot of money on exhale gains versus people who go to work every day and help this economy grow. >> you know, i was back home. i saw the commercials. president obama's not the most popular guy on the prairie. and they were really going after him on obama care. how did you get around that and get the victory. what did you say about obama care? >> well, as you know, i'm a breast cancer survivor. and i simply sent a message that, you know, i'd never take away seniors' health care or anyone's health care. there's good and bad in the health care law, and we need to fix the bad parts and keep the good parts. and basically, a lot of people thought you should just run away from it. and i said, wait a minute, there's some really good things in obama care. there's some really good things about the health care law. there are some things that need to be fixed. why can't we just sit down and fix the bad and keep good and move on? health care is way too important to politicize it, the way it's been politicized for the last four years. >> what advice would you give to the president right now, after today's press conference, moving forward, trying to fight through the obstruction that we can anticipate from the republicans, if it's anything like the last session of congress. >> well, i thought the president was right when he said, you know, what's his mandate. his mandate is to help working class folks. is to help move this country forward and start getting some jobs and real economic development in our country, so that we can get people back to work. and i think it so sounds like those are his priorities. obviously, we have a lot of discussions forward on energy policy and we -- >> i was going to ask you about that. about energy policy. i know oil is huge in north dakota, no doubt. what about the pipeline? would you support it? the keystone? >> i've always supported the keystone pipeline. i think the president's going to approve it. but that's just one part of a good energy policy. the problem we have, ed, is you have people on the right who say it's all about fossil fuels. and there are people on the left who say, it's all about renewables. but if we were going to have energy independence and really grow our economy, we need to use both and we need to figure out how we're going to transport that energy from smart grids, electrical smart grids, to pipelines, to rail, whatever it takes to get this economy back moving. >> heidi, you are an unspoiled person and this is going to be a tough lift because of the litmus test that takes place in washington from time to time. i hope you can cut through it all and do deals for the people of north dakota and the country. it's going to be interesting to see. i have to ask you, if you were going to skpcompare yourself to senator, in thinking alike, who would it be? >> it would be kent conrad. that's no surprise to you. kent and i have been friends for a long time. he encouraged me to make this run. he cares about the deficit like no one cares about the deficit in this country. i intend to pick up that mantle and deal with the farm bill and energy policy and help our state become successful. >> former tax commissioner, former attorney general, mom, survivor of cancer. you've got quite a resume. heidi, good luck to you. thank you. >> thanks, ed. >> you bet. >> and she's a friend of mine. you can tell. >>> coming up, republicans just can't handle the truth. but the people have spoken. i'll show the fact deniers, just what this year's election results really mean. >>> and as we head to break, one of the great harbingers of the holiday season has arrived here at 30 rock in new york city. rockefeller center. it's an 80-footer, folks. it's a norway, all the way from the great state of new jersey. and seeing that i have some producers on staff from new jersey, i can call it a great state.
